Hiding Out (Psss -it is snowing right now)

Surely of interest to no one, but I’ve been fortunate to enjoy a rather lazy extended piece of time, 6 days wrapped around Thanksgiving at our Arizona mountain hideaway in Strawberry (yes readers, Arizona is not a swath of Arabian windswept desert, but have places with trees and weather). I had sworn our elevation was 6000 feet from a local topo map, but was sadly informed via my GPs that we site at 5620 feet.

Yep. winter weather rolled in today with morning hail, snow, and rain, and we are warmed by a fire in our wood stove. And this is primitive, as the occasional internet access is at a whopping 26 kbs via dlal up. It makes ‘surfing’ a completely different experience lots of patience and paddling required.

After a return home last week from the 3 weeks of great but intensive workshops in New Zealand (23 of ’em), I am hoping this is enough to recharge for December- lots of projects and pending tasks, not to mention the arduous series of office holiday parties.

Oh well, one more day of bliss. Ahhhhhhh
